The seafood industry is one that constantly faces challenges related to hygiene, quality, and shelflife.


Contaminated seafood not only poses a health risk but can also significantly reduce profitability due to waste and spoilage.


To address these issues, the industry is forever in search of effective yet environmentally friendly sanitization solutions.


One innovative approach that has been gaining attention is the use of hypochlorous acid (HOCl) generated through EcoloxTech systems.


In this presentation, we'll explore how this nontoxic and versatile sanitizer can revolutionize the seafood processing industry.


What is EcoloxTech HOCl?


EcoloxTech specializes in producing electrochemically activated solutions, primarily hypochlorous acid (HOCl).


HOCl is a powerful oxidant that effectively eliminates harmful microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi.


Unlike traditional sanitizers that often require a subsequent rinse to remove chemical residues, EcoloxTech’s HOCl solution does not require a post-rinse, thereby streamlining the sanitation process.


Moreover, it can also be used in the production of sanitized ice, offering a multi-purpose solution for seafood processors.



Enhanced Food Safety


HOCl has been shown to effectively eliminate harmful bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that may be present on the surface of seafood or in the processing environment, reducing the risk of foodborne illness outbreaks.


Extended Shelf Life


Bacterial contamination is a primary cause of spoilage in seafood. 


A reduction in microbial counts means an extension in the shelf life of the product.


With HOCl's proven anti-microbial properties, seafood processors can significantly reduce waste while improving their bottom line.


Extended shelf life also expands the potential for exporting seafood to distant markets.


Streamlined Operations


The "no-rinse" characteristic of EcoloxTech’s HOCl not only ensures that no chemical residue is left on the seafood but also speeds up the processing cycle.


Eliminating the rinse step reduces water usage and shortens processing time, leading to more efficient operations and lower costs.




The versatility of HOCl allows seafood processors to use a single solution for multiple applications— from surface sanitation to ice production.


This consolidation can simplify operations and reduce overall supply costs.


Moreover, HOCl solutions are typically less expensive than other, more toxic chemicals used for the same purpose.


Environmental Stewardship


HOCl is eco-friendly, breaking down into harmless by-products like water and salt.


For seafood processors who are conscious about their environmental footprint, this is a significant benefit.


Moreover, the reduction in water usage for postrinsing also contributes to sustainability.





EcoloxTech’s HOCl solution offers a multipronged approach to addressing the challenges faced by the seafood processing industry.


From ensuring food safety and extending product shelf life to improving operational efficiencies and environmental sustainability, this innovative sanitizer appears poised to make a significant impact.
